My cycles are long, but my luteal phase is always 11-12 days, mostly 11. I O’d 15 days ago. I had 2 +OPK in a row plys EWCM at that time and a temp shift right after – temps have stayed up since then so I know I O’d that day. So I am 3-4 days late atm. I’ve gotten a BFN every morning since 11dpo. Monday was our first RE appointment and this next cycle we’re doing clomid/trigger shot/IUI. BUT, if I don’t get AF by friday (it will be 5-6 days late then) that means I’ll be out of town for Xmas when i should be getting the trigger and IUI so we’ll have to skip that this cycle 🙁 My body hates me. The one time I beg AF to come on time and she doesn’t!
What else could cause my LP to be longer than it always is??

@nhoh: If you know the day you ovulated, you’re already 3-4 days late, and your temps are still high, then you could be pregnant. Some women don’t get positives on tests until much later in their pregnancies. You could ask for a blood test to be sure.

I agree with the previous poster. The luteal phase is the only consistent part of the cycle, so if you know when you ovulated and you’re several days past your usual luteal phase, you’re likely pregnant! Test again in a couple days, or get a serum beta from your doc.

@nhoh: I really hope you are pregnant! My cycles were all over the place. I used to pray for AF to show up so we could try again for anther month. Things look good though. Your temps are up and DPO11 is still early. Maybe your getting a early christmas present… I hope so!

Thanks ladies. I’m so so hoping I’m pg, but I have no symptoms at all, and just don’t feel like I am. It just seems like I should be getting a BFP at 15dpo. I’ll keep testing! I’m trying to decided what day to call my dr. If your normal LP was 11 days, how many dpo would you call the Dr?

If you’re already 3-4 days late, I’d go ahead and call the doctor. Maybe request a blood test. For some reason, there are women who don’t secrete hcg into their urine stream. I’ve read accounts of women who get BFNs when they are 7, 8, 9 months pregnant. Either way, a blood test at this point will be fairly conclusive and if you’re not then maybe your doctor can give you something to persuade the witch to show up soon.

@nhoh: Periods can be delayed for many, many reasons… If your temp is still high, that is very reasuring! But if it falls and still no period, then I would wait until at least CD40 to call the doctor. Most doctors I work with won’t induce a period/order a blood test until CD45 ish. GL
Were you sick at all? Stressed?
FX for you that you’re pregnant!

Cysts can also cause sustained high temperatures. They can also cause pregnancy-like symptoms (including lack of period, I believe). If I were you I would make an appointment. Better to know if its a baby, cyst, or what… And plan accordingly!
fingers crossed for good news or quick resolution!

Got AF this morning. At least now we can start our first clomid cycle. First ultrasound today to check for cysts on day 1. Glad to start on clomid but bummed at the timing since now we wo’nt be able to do IUI due to holiday vacation 🙁
